October / November Blues

Jarrod with one of the last winter wahoo

With the water temperature now rocketing up the winter wahoo have moved on to pastures new. For the next month or two, Bite Me will be fishing for a mixed bag of species as we wait for the start of the summer run of yellowfin tuna. Popping and jigging when the weather allows but mostly trolling for stray wahoo, early yellowfin, dolphinfish and blue marlin.
Anglers Jarrod, Julian & Damian from Angling Adventures copped some mediocre weather but still managed some nice fish.
